    Write 2 paragraphs as to how you envision the world in the next 100-400 years.  What type of technological changes will be there be?  How will living and work conditions be?  Will the concept of work and money disappear?  Will religons evolve or become extinct or will there be a universal religion? Will the concept of social class disappear or become more entrenched and rigid with a very small elite and enslaved masses?   The only limit to your answers is your imagination?

      But, what about spelling, punctuation and sentence coherence?
      outline form okay? when is it due?- just kidding.  nice picture, gm.  Do your topic ideas come from images you find or do you find images for your ideas...
      just curious. I might tackle this but I have to think for a while.
      - Later.

          Well, I thought you were getting fuel for hubs by investigating other viewpoints.  Heck, with the amount of info you've been harvesting you should be writing for a wider audience than just here on HP! It is fun to get immediate reactions, though.

            I love others' viewpoints.  That is why I enjoy the forums and asking questions, love to make people analyze and think. Asking questions and participating in forums are for conversation and discussion purposes only.  I love to listen and have discourses with others. 

            However, I write hubs based upon personal observations, research from related books, from reading, and analysis.  I have books on psychology, sociology, history, new age, astrology, fashion, religion, etc.  I have over 2.000 books.  Do a LOT of reading and thinking.  I also have a very active and vivid imagination-THAT is used in creative and fiction writing.

    In the future people will possess rapid fire synapses and mental processes due to evolutional developments through centuries use of electronic information systems. Talking will be minimal. Hand signals will be used greatly. Facial expressions will also be used to a greater extent in communicating nuances, feelings and emotions.  By 5013 concrete currency will become obsolete, but not working for (abstract) amounts. Electronic computing devices will still be utilized to keep track of day to day financial data. Incomes, credits and debits will be held in governmental data bases. Gold will no longer be the standard. Planets will be. Planets will be owned by one of two 1/2 World Order Nations. When either "nation" sets foot on a planet with either manned or unmanned spacecraft, the planet will be claimed. Wars during this time will involve disputes over ownership and possession of planets. (Wars are no longer fought on earth due to the severely destructive nature of advanced weaponry.) Countries keep their borders, but are no longer under their own jurisdiction. Every country is either under the rule of America, (which now includes Mexico and Canada) or Russia, (which now includes China.) 
         Children under either 1/2 World Order Nation become wards of the state (at three yrs. in Russia and seven yrs. in America.) They are trained in government space-education institutions. Outer space exploration and conquest for both nations becomes all engrossing. All children are expected to master astronomy, mathematics and physics. The brightest graduates of the governmental space-training institutions are sent to planets where they are expected to live and operate under the direction of their government. Domes are built and maintained by these government subjects/inhabitants and swear loyalty to their country. Instances of treason are punishable by instant death. Children who do not "make the grade" are sent to survive the best they can in "the outside realms" on earth.
          No, there is no religion. Standards of morality are based on love in America and logic in Russia, but in both "nations", morals are often twisted in favor of Governmental priorities/policies. The masses who live in countries under Russian dominance live in socialistic societies. Interdependence is facilitated through governmental institutions and independence in any form is grounds for incarceration. Under American dominance, the masses are left to themselves in "the outside realms" which survive as we do today. However, independence is no longer linked up with interdependence. In every arena whether business, education, health care, transportation, municipal operations, etc. there is intense competition, ridicule and one up-man-ship. Some colonies try to survive utilizing concepts of brotherly love, but even there, fierce bickering and hatred periodically erupt. Writing and the use of the hand (and various crafts such as wood working, hand sewing and painting/drawing) have become obsolete. Babies are observed to be born with larger and larger heads and smaller and smaller hands...
    I think that is three paragraphs already.
    But I tried, Teach.

          If you have a picture gallery and write a forum post, just click photos, and see upload, import, and my photos.  I just go into my photos and select the picture I want, it's much easier than to go into upload.

                    Well, thanks for the A. It was fun. You should try it.  But I can't "make" you.  I can only encourage....
                    and inspire....
                    - how about a picture of a future human, at least?
